Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.
.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.
.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.
Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download, an abridged version of the installation will be shown further down this page.
ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.
Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
Initial Release – 1st September 2020
The Movers features four paired Max for Live devices, designed as control tools for both Live and external parameters. Add expression by easily targeting single parameters inside your Live set, or give these modulation sources any of the available MIDI message formats and take control over other external instruments.
Functions is a versatile control device, designed as a dynamic modulation source for both Live and external parameters. Integrated by two editable waveforms, it could be played both as a classic LFO, or a complex envelope, being triggered by incoming MIDI notes. These modulation sources are distributed at will between five output layers, each assigned either by individual Map buttons, or by sending out any of the available MIDI message formats: Control Change, Pitch Bend, Modulation Wheel, Foot Control or Aftertouch.
The audio effect version of Functions works almost exactly the same, with the only difference being that it cannot be triggered by MIDI notes nor sent MIDI control information. Instead, both sources could be applied over the audio input signal, offering different ways to modulate its amplitude level and panning position.
Ministeps is a simple and useful control device, also designed as a modulation source for both Live and external parameters. Control values coming from the three integrated sequencers are distributed at will between five output layers, each assigned either by individual Map buttons, or by sending out any of the available MIDI message formats: Control Change, Pitch Bend, Modulation Wheel, Foot Control or Aftertouch.
Ministeps is composed by a pair of devices, where depending on each case, either the MIDI or the audio version of this effect could be more useful than the other. Nonetheless, both alternatives present the same characteristics, with the only exception being that no MIDI options are included on the Ministeps audio effect.
